Atkins Chocolate Raspberry Cookies
The low sugar treats in the world keep getting better. They save your teeth from cavities and your waistline from expanding! These cookies are a great balance of chocolate and raspberry.
They are only 5g carbs for 2 cookies which is FAR less than most sugar-filled items you find at your supermarket. There are 0g of trans fats. There is both Splenda and sugar alcohols (maltitol) in here - so those sensitive to sugar alcohols should try just one first to see how they react to the cookies.
There's a nice crunchy white cookie within, with a layer of raspberry jelly, all coated with a smooth dark chocolate outside. This is really a treat to savor, not a bland tasting snack to devour 800 of in a sitting :) Which is good in many ways. It gives you a lot of satisfaction, and it breaks you of the habit of just putting food into your mouth without realizing it.
A box of 16 is about $4 - so this is on par with other gourmet cookies. It is definitely something you can put out for guests and they'll really like the flavor and texture with tea or coffee.
Highly recommended for those who want to lower the sugar in their daily diet, and who enjoy really delicious dessert treats!
